SLI compatible and cheap as hell for what you get!

I would pick this up over all aforementioned cards if I were you OP. 6+1 power phase and arguably one of the best dual slot coolers on the market.

This is your answer, bar none. Great card for a great price!

IMO:

If you plan to
1) Run high resolution
2) Plan to Crossfire
Then get a 6970.

Otherwise I would get a GTX 570

Ask yourself these questions:

IF you might go multiple monitors down the road - AMD 6970.

IF you might go 3D vision down the road - Nvidia 570.

IF you might want to leave the door open for either then choose accordingly.

IF your not going to do either, then flip a coin. They run about the same. Each trade blows rather well in performance tests in all the reviews I read.

Each have an issue to think about - AMD drivers not the best track record. It's a hit or miss and when it's a miss they eventually get to fixing it but might open the door for another problem. Nvidia 570 reference cards don't have enough power phases as the non-reference and don't over clock well. Just don't over voltage the card and you'll be fine you just won't acheive a high over clock. Non-reference 570's don't havethis problem however. AMD 6970 don't over clock that well either anyway, even without any power phase issues.

Both can be dealt with to some degree.

Personally I'd choose EVGA GTX 570 because I like the great lifetime warranty. No hassel replacement should anything go wrong anyway. EVGA has your back covered if it does.

However, again, no right or wrong choice. Good luck and let us know after you pull the trigger which way you went.
